Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior Unveiled, Has Players Fighting Alongside Their Past Selves
The hack-and-slash game will let you grow your legion and rewind time.
Coming later this year, Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior was revealed at Summer Game Fest. The hack-and-slash game sees players battling enemies with their past selves by tinkering with time itself.
Developer Sand Door Studio is behind Lysfanga, in which you grow your legion of clones. The studio is based in France. Quantic Dream--known for its work on Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human--is publishing the title. In fact, Quantic Dream also announced Under the Waves at Summer Game Fest, too.
Rewind time to create clones of your past-selves and fight with an army of your own in Lysfanga: The Time Shift Warrior, a new Hack 'n' Slash game with a tactical twist, coming out in 2023! #Lysfanga #SGF2023 pic.twitter.com/lUh9fiCme0— Sand Door Studio (@SandDoorStudio) June 8, 2023
The first trailer for Lysfanga shows the game's hero, Imë, falling in battle. But afterward, the goddess of time blesses her with the power to engage in combat with her past selves. By rewinding back, your previous actions will still take place, which seems to allow players to team up on baddies or tackle other foes, called Raxes.
The game features a three-quarters vantage point for the hack-and-slash action. Players will explore the world of Antala and work to top their high scores in arenas. In addition, Lysfanga will feature different difficulty settings and combat modifiers.
Lysfanga will arrive in 2023, though no specific date was given.
